, but also we're about to elect a president for the next four years, and there are lots of places in the country where he can be campaigning and should be campaigning. i think he's right. he's not going to go out and poke at president obama just like chris christie's not. nobody else is going to. but we got a really big election next tuesday. >> greta: it's sort of interesting. most of the damage is in new jersey and maryland and all these coastal states. they're not the swing states. it seems to me that there would maybe be a political advantage to governor romney because president obama is busy with those states. he can go out to colorado and minnesota, he can go to michigan, and even ohio is touched by the storm. in some ways, the president is sort of locked into position. >> well, virginia's touched by this. pennsylvania very seriously hit by this. there's a lot of overflow into ohio. there's a serious situation there, but the bigger point is that every minute of television today and yesterday and the day before yesterday, every minute was dedicated to this storm which means i

a version of chinese state-directed capitalism by the way of stimulus. mr. obama might squeak by. he has in addition to incumbency and a vestige of likability, a candidate who found his stride late in the campaign. but a second term will mean four years of spent ideas packaged in shopworn rhetoric to be shoved down the throat by a president who has nothing politically to lose. i'm not sure that's fair. would you agree with that? i don't think so. >> i would agree that the president's exhausted intellectually when it comes to what he plans to do for the next our years. i think there's a big question mark, though, also over what mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we know for sure is mitt romney's saying he's going to cut taxes and barack obama says he's going to raise taxes and neither one of these -- >> that's the argument in the messaging out on the campaign trail. but when you look at what this president has done -- >> no, no, no, no -- just stop. >> what? >> just stop. i'm talking about the future. you want to talk about the past. if i say the president's intelle

than barack obama but i do not think it will make a difference in any state unless we have three, four, five states that are squeakers and then you get in a situation like 2000 with ralph nader. as far as gary johnson's real impact, let's put it in context. since libertarians have run for president in the modern era, they have only one more than 1% a single time, i think it is 1980 when mr. clark was running against reagan and jimmy carter. otherwise they get about a half a percent or less of the national vote. even ron paul got half a percent, a belief, when he ran in 1988. so we are not talking about a whole lot of votes. so, they could be critical votes in certain states that are very close. we have an independent in virginia, former congressman virgil goode who once represented the area i am in right now, fifth district of virginia. he was a very popular congressman. he lost a reelection in 2008 in the obama wave by just a tiny number of votes, about 700. it was the closest congressional race in the entire country in 2008. he's got strong support on the north carolina border. he is

boots on. i thought that was interesting. one of the most important initiatives of president obama's administered has been the so called pivot rebalancing in asia, in which america has prioritized the asia-pacific region, as a key american strategy for the foreseeable future. over the past four years we've seen to united states for the consolidate our strong alliance institutions in east asia, build forward-looking partnerships in southeast asia, and in south asia. and contribute to an open and prosperous economic trading order throughout the region. while many have contributed to these policies, it's fair to set much of this could not a been accomplished without the work of you, kurt, assistant secretary camel has invested many hours on airplanes and foreign ministries and interagency conference rooms and on the telephone at home. in support of the u.s. interest in asia. your tireless efforts, your deep commitment, good humor are well known throughout asia. and we here at georgetown want to recognize your work with the georgetown asia award.

obama will likely see on his tour here today. i'm standing at a restaurant in a beachside motel, and i'm standing in sand. it's got to be three or four feet, think about it. this is the breakfast counter right here. on a typical morning like this people would be in here enjoying a cup of coffee, breakfast, maybe watching you guys on tv and checking out the view. by the way, i stayed at this hotel last night, breakfast not included and certainly not power either, but the bed was comfortable. let me show you out here. the sand was swept in by the surge. it goes in block after block after block here. there are homes, vacation homes. there are year-rouyn residents that live here, condos. i found it interesting. this clock up here is one of the few things that was actually running. must be on battery because it actually hats right time, eastern time right now. this is an area where people have been starting to come today to view the damage for themselves. we mentioned the president and the governor will be touring the jersey shore, but people who live here are touring it, and they are seein
